Printing is a departure from my usual direct transfer of ideas from a thought to a product.
Woodblock printing is the most accessible and simple form of printing; no special equipment nor chemicals are required. Carve, then print.
I learned woodblock printing when I was studying in Japan. I use my personal hanko, or signature stamp, for my printmaking projects. It reminds me of my printmaking instructor every time I sign my work.
I began printing my own holiday cards and decided this was a tradition I wanted to continue. I have not printed a new design every year, but I have been trying to.
